    QuickSilver Active Titan Exhaust. The British built monster for your R8 Gen 1 & II

    Greetings R8 Talk!

    We’re often receiving calls and emails from forum members regarding our Gen II Active Titan Exhaust, so I’ve put all the information in one place for your review.

    Construction


    QuickSilver Titans are a Titanium / Stainless hybrid. Why a hybrid system? – Because it gives you the best of everything!

    - Titanium Silencer: Serious weight saving and stunning resonance

    - T304 Stainless tubing and bracketry for strength and durability

    - CNC flanges

    - Plug-and-play active valves (wireless control modules are also available for earlier models without exhaust button)

    - Designed and manufactured in house, exclusively in Great Britain. Tested Worldwide.

    Weight Saving

    - 54% weight saving over OE. Stock = 82lbs / QS = 38lbs.

    Sound and Silencer Design Explained

    One of our criticisms of the R8’s stock exhaust is that it sounds too ‘dry’. There is minimal resonant sustain within the OE system and we worked tirelessly to create a ‘wetter’, full bodied soundtrack with unrivalled tone throughout the rev range.

    We re-wrote the R8 rulebook to achieve this by designing an X-pipe pressure exchanger with a trick up its sleeve – our asymmetric balance pipe. The balance pipe produces the automotive equivalent of a flanger effect for your R8. The signals from each bank are mixed by the X-pipe and played in unison by the tail pipes. The balance pipe then allows a minute (circa > 10 millisecond) displacement of a portion of the audio signal. This creates a variable time-delayed copy of the X-Pipe exhaust note; resulting in a thick, ‘doubled up’ soundtrack with greatly accentuated peaks and troughs.

    The X-Pipe + Balance pipe combination creates a rich symphonic soundtrack with punchy lows, thick mid-range resonance, and crisp highs with pops, bangs and crackles reminiscent of a firework display. And don’t just take my word for it! Our development car was borrowed by Sounding Sweet – the recording specialists who provide the automotive soundtracks to all your favourite videogames and movies. They described the QuickSilver R8 as “The best sounding car we’ve ever recorded” – and their roster is extensive!

    Hearing is believing so please check out our customer-submitted R8 Gen II Compilation below. A special thanks to the forum members who have sent in footage.



    Our Titan Sport systems (valved and non-valved) are also available for all Gen 1 R8's. We'll follow up with more video shortly!

    Our Gen II R8 Systems have always followed the same internal design. X-Pipe, asymmetric balance pipe and Titanium silencers.

    Is the exhaust in your first post the same exhaust as in this video?

    Yes indeed! This is the QuickSilver AU389A Active Titan as fitted to Archie Hamilton's R8. The same system is installed on every car in the compilation video in my first post.

    I'm still working on putting a video together that'll have before and after revs, then some drive by's hopefully. But GMP did the install and shot a quick little video of before and after....(granted their audio isn't the greatest)
